Paradiso 240 SC is a contact acaricide effective on all spider mite stages with excellent residual activity for use on fruit, vegetables and ornamentals, due to its short harvest interval and potential for use in integrated pest management, IPM.
PARADISO 240 SC is an acaricide
containing the active ingredient bifenazate.
It can be widely used in horticulture and in field crops. It is highly effective against motile stages
of spider mites and also shows activity against eggs.

Spectrum of activity
PARADISO 240 SC has proved to be very effective for the control of spider mites, such as Tetranychus urticae, T.cinnibarinus, and rust mites (Phyllocoptruta spp.), on a wide range of horticultural crops, such as cut flowers, ornamentals, tomatoes, top fruit, citrus and strawberries. PARADISO 240 SCwith its novel mode of action should prove effective where other acaricides have been unsuccessful because of pest resistance.
PARADISO 240 SC controls both egg
and motile stages of phytophagous mites, and can be used on a wide range of
horticultural, fruit and ornamental crops. Good application techniques and
correct spray volumes are needed to ensure thorough cover of upper and
undersides of leaves, since the product is not systemic. PARADISO 240 SC is effective on the eggs, larvae andadult
of Tetranychus urticae and mobile stage of Panonychus
ulmi. These additional mite species are also sensitive: Bryobia,
Eotetranychus and Oligonychus spp.
PARADISO 240 SC is a specific
acaricide, and at recommended rates has generally low effect on insects, with
little impact on bees, other beneficial insects, and predaceous mites. It is
therefore highly compatible with integrated pest management (IPM) programs.
Mode of action
PARADISO 240 SC acaricide has
predominantly contact action, with long residuality. It is not systemic or
translaminar. Bifenazate acts by stimulating release of the inhibitory
neurotransmitter, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), inhibiting nerve signal
transmission to muscles. Susceptible mites become terminally paralysed and die.
